Most Favorable Review

For a lower price BOARD it is 5 Stars

MSI PERFORMANCE GAMING X470 GAMING PLUS AM4 AMD X470 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI PERFORMANCE GAMING X470 GAMING PLUS AM4 AMD X470 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Lotsa feature and slots. The RAM lights are right at the ram and not in a code to cross check. I built as I had a Dual Channel kit. The board showed me I had one dead stick. At least I know. Thanks for the bad news or it never would have POST checked . I assume the neon is OK in comparo. Looks pleasant. I have no configed it much yet. The main PCIe slot looks rugged. I use the M.2 the MP500 for the C:DRIVE and the scoring for that I did is fine with one RAM stick. The Quick Install fold out shows the FRONT PANEL jumpers IN LARGE....GREAT! I was off on pin on the reset anyway....what can one say about those tiny things?

Cons: Gee. After all this time you think everyone would have a better FRONT PANEL method. It is like all the rest except the board that have the intermediary block.

Overall Review: With a Ryzen 2200G: Mine clocked 3.75GHz with no prompting and in S.A.N.D.R.A. i found this low end 2018 2XXX Ryzen equaled a big bad Xeon SMT Quad also clocked at about the same CPU clock speed. I see a low operating temp, right now it is 22C. I have used a Richland A10 for years and I expect this performance, although a Richland APU will turbo to 4.4GHz. This IGP holds 4k resolution great as a desktop not as a competitive online gaming machine. Looks sharp as any dedicated VGA, and I got RX470 and GTX1080 both. ----later---- Have not checked board with the cards. I thought an IGP comment was more important as everyone w\knows what a GTX1080 does. The IGP does not seem to eat a lot of the system RAM. 7.7Gb out of 8Gb in task manager. It is a nice snappy desktop right out of the box and ran 3200 DDR4 at 2900 with no prompting.

Most Critical Review

First 3200 setting meant BSOD

Pros: Just NOT near promised speed

Cons: That's bad enough, ain't it? I got defeated and ever ever SO angry I let it default...aka common slow RAM here!

Overall Review: Wanna O C ? Get something else. Pay the extra.

Looks good

Jansicotek HDMI to DVI 24+5 Male to Female Adapter Cable, HDMI to DVI-I Video Cord 1080P for Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Apple TV, Roku, HDTV, Plasma, DVD and Projector

Pros: These cable adapters are a tad rare. HOWEVER, I have a good veteran Dell 30" 2K monitor. I have a new video card in a PC to replace an obsolete 6-core Intel CPU that is non-upgradable to Windows 11 in a manner that allows superannuinitie via further updates. This adapter might get a good Windows 11 PC to function onward versus turn into an obsolete digital antique.

Cons: I hope itvworks

Overall Review: C u l8tr

Overall Review: Ok, it's quality

Blowout

Cons: Mind blowing low price Black Friday

Overall Review: Rysen rules.

Identical to all the others.

The big vague unknown is that you would actually have to count printed pgs. until dried up 100% to find the actual value. I like my mono Ricoh. Hope I got a good bargaonu, but I do not do a cart/wk.

from 4gb to 8gb

Makes a world of difference so the bottom of the Gen Ten CPU list can be free to perform, at 4gb System RAM it was hIndered, hampered, aka a touch bottlenecked. At 8gb web pages pop quicker and the side bars ad trash is even there, you may proceed with web clicks like a big boy!
